Those two great commodities - Time and Money.
Many of us spend our days in pursuit of one, in the hope it will free up more of the other. Work to earn more money so we can have more time (some day).
What if we turn this on its head for a moment - create the time first, then see how our money fits into the mix? How does that now look to you.
At Serenity Financial Planning, yes we do all the clever money stuff, yet most of our work with our clients is spent around the Time / Money balance shift. To look at that constant pursuit of 'more' and consider the question - "what if I had a spare time rise this year instead of a salary rise?". I use the PRIORITY = TIME formula with clients as outlined here which all of a sudden helps us spot those Time Bandits in our lives.
More time in your life doesn't necessarily mean less money, in fact, frequently, the opposite is true as we become more focused, more fulfilled and more productive.
Here are the 8 reasons why time is more valuable, and a great insight into each...
1. You Can't Make More Time
2. You Can Do More With a Day Off Than With a Day's Pay
3. Time Creates More Memories Than Money
4. You Need Time to Spend Money
5. People Close to Death Wish for More Time, Not Money
6. Time Brings More Happiness Than Money
7. Time Is Priceless, Money Is Not
8. Time, Not Money, Is a Great Healer
When you put time against money, it's no contest. Money helps you live your life over that time, but it's time itself that gives you the greatest benefit.
